Truthfully, we do have a bunch of guys in the system who fill similar roles to Prust. Though it begs the question why we sign a guy like Jackman and trade for Kostopolous when our farm system is literally comprised of nothing but 4th line grinders with 4 foot ceilings. I'm gonna go with 'our GM is a clown', it seems to be a reasonable answer.
